Happy Groundhog Day - NOT!!!

The outside temp is hovering around -29C, with a windchill into the minus 40's ... the sun is shining and the sky is clear !!

That means Minnedosa Mildred, who we've visited before, and her chum, Brandon Bob have seen their shadows this morning. According to tradition, we're in for 6 more weeks of winter ...

I wonder if there current observations count though?

Mildred and Bob have called in their observations from a warm sunny beach somewhere in Mexico where they've escaped from the cold ... they promise to be back when winter is over, but for now are enjoying mojitos in the sun ...

Damned rodents !!

An interesting aside though, the last two Groundhog days have had almost IDENTICAL weather to today ... clear blue sky, biting cold and wicked wind chill ... it REALLY does raise the question - "why do people live here????"
